More Information About the Castle Rock ChiliFest
For the past five years, Boy Scout Troop 780 has organized the annual Castle Rock ChiliFest – which is an event designed to bring the community, friends and family together for fun, food, celebration and entertainment.
Troop 780 encourages as many members of the public to participate in this event as possible. Last year’s Castle Rock ChiliFest saw more than 1,000 people in attendance, and the Boy Scout troop raised more than $10,000.
The money raised will allow the troop to participate in the Boy Scouts of America High Adventure, which offers adventure experiences such as canoeing and winter camping challenges, backpacking expeditions and adventure sports programs.
Don’t miss this fun and delicious annual event that supports a local Boy Scout Troop!
Early bird general admission tickets may be purchased online, and cost $8/each. General admission tickets include access to the event’s car show, live music, a silent auction, and tasting and voting on chili that has been entered in the chili cook-off contest.
